I was first introduced to Pilates in 2003 as a way of helping my low back problems. At the time I was a competitive ice dancer and was amazed with not only how much it helped me manage and control my low back but how much stronger I was as a performer. I then used it as a form of conditioning right through my time competing and medalling for Team GB internationally and then later as a professional performer.
I then decided to transition career to helping other athletes and completed my Pilates Matwork Teacher Training through APPI and my degree in Sport Rehabilitation as well as my training in Strength and Conditioning. Over the following 10 years I became fully trained on apparatus, continued training with BCP, BBU, APPI and 2nd Generation teachers, worked alongside physios and women’s health specialists. I have worked with an array of clients from Premier League Football players, Olympic Medallist Swimmers, Professional Ballet Dancers, Amateur athletes, Ante/postnatal clients, clients with musculoskeletal problems such as low back pain, clients with Cerebral Palsy and clients aged 5-90 years old.
I opened Clinic Equilibrium Pilates Studio in Bowdon back in July 2015 and then Elite Physio and Therapy Clinic in January 2017 and I now love the variety of seeing clients with all kinds of goals and needs along with training other teachers and healthcare professionals in using Pilates to get the best for their clients.
